That's handy she has photos of the jewellery, it should help with any insurance claim.

If you own jewellery of that value it makes sense to photograph it...saves a lot of explaining! Can now be easily identified if someone is seen wearing the items.

It would only be indentified easily by those that have seen the pictures of the items, what's the likelyhood of someone wearing them anyway? The ring might not even fit. More likely to be sold abroad I would have thought, or on eBay after a few years. Chances of someone who has seen these pictures seeing the items is remote.

You are probably right, I have never really given photographing jewellery much thought in the past, I have never owned any of significant vaue.
